They are distinguished from crocodiles by their broad, rounded snout and that the fourth tooth on each side of lower jaw is hidden when mouth is closed. Young alligators are black with yellowish cross-bars. Mature alligators are coal black when wet, dark gray when dry. Alligators live in swampy regions near lakes and rivers. They are common in Florida. An alligator's diet consists of waterfowl (such as ducks) or fish. Although they have short legs, alligators are remarkably fast on land.
